OPW is nearly finished, but my work with the documentation on the other hand is not. After you have opened the door of documentation you can never really close it. There is always some room for improvements. Being introduced to a community thorough a program like this is brilliant. Initially, you have the brand of being a newbie and you are allowed to make all the mistakes and ask all the silly questions without feeling embarrassed.
For me the defining moment in this project was the Brno hackfest. That event sealed the feeling that I have found something I feel I belong to. GNOME, after the hackfest there is no way you are going to lose me, whether you like it or not!
The leap to become a developer has been a joyful one, with the necessary WTF moments. I have learned a lot and I still keep learning new things every day. I can’t emphasize enough of the meaning of the hackfest for me, it made all the difference, so all the future students should be brought to a hackfest as soon as possible. That is the way you get to keep us. For the future OPW and GSoC interns I have just one advice: enjoy.
